Nice car but think of all that salty sea air!

A bit pricey for a 'Classic SE'. Wind-up Rear Windows and the material on the Seats leaves a lot to be desired.

It does state FSH but I wonder if the Belts have been done...??

If they have and as it states FSH and the bodywork is in pristine condition and no faults I suppose it's worth it at a push. Let's face it, it ain't no "Luxurious Limousine".

I guess beauty is in the eye. I have seen this lovely 75 around the Island, and for me it is a Luxurious Limo, certainly compared to a Honda!!

If it was a tourer it would no longer be for sale, it would be mine! The good thing about the seats is they are very comfortable and no cows died in making them!

If any member wants a lift to see it just contact, I am happy to meet from any ferry and drive over.

That's if the salt air doesn't rot it this week!

I bought a Classic SE after my Connoisseur SE died, and IMHO the cloth seats are more comfortable than the leather

"Gee, how many times have we heard this folks"

"No, they died making Steaks, Mince, Hamburgers, Pies, Stews, Sausages etc. Better than them being thrown away"!

"Seems to me your relationship with this car is more than meets the eye"....

That's if the salt air doesn't rot it this week!

"No, only Hondas do that"
Good luck with the sale...... Sorry I mean your friends.

Salt air? I've been living on the coast for over 20 years now and have found that most of the cars here are in far better condition in terms of rust than those I found when I lived in West Yorkshire. Our roads are "salted" far less than most as our weather is milder. As far as "salt in the air", unless you live on a beach, it just doesn't happen!
Saltaire is in West Yorkshire!

It never takes long for someone to post a car isn't worth what's being asked for it.

I find it totally bizarre the way some people practically fall over themselves to be negative about any ad
